Thanks for posting the link, fascinating stuff. Where are they now?

The car below that featured in Randall & Hopkirk (deceased) looks to be a factory promotional car going by the 120 number plate.

Kindest regards

Very interesting! I'm surprised there are no Type 28, Lotus Cortina

Super interesting link thanks.............. but can't see the white Elan Michael Crawford drove in 'Hello Goodbye' as Harry England but then I did get carried away with Genevieve Gilles as Dany I think she was named. :cry:

Fast Forward to around 5 mins on the final one 10/10 to see the Elan it runs for around 5 minutes to the end

The link is reduced on the post so probably won't copy correctly into search engine so just click on link here...........great film with lots of classic cars throughout and whole film is loaded on youtube

Had another look in and can't see either the Europa registration (false) 'GAV IN' in the TV series 'one flew over the cukoo's nest'

Hi Ralph,
Very interesting link thank you. My Sprint hasn't starred in any movies but my Europa was subject of a "Back to back" feature by Classic and Sportscar - August 2003 edition - against an Alpine 110. No real conclusion drawn in the article.
And yes, I still own the Europa.
